The place is beautiful, well maintained and the staff members are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are secure and it was easy to find it. The interior is beautiful and the bed was very comfortable. The DStv channels are very limited though and there was broken glass near the pool for 2 days before my arrival. Apparently someone had a party on Sunday and by Tuesday it was still there.

We had a lovely stay at the Maritis guesthouse. The service was so great. What we enjoyed most is the rooms, everything inside the rooms is neat and beautiful. The beds are very comfortable. Also we liked that the place is quite and we meet lovely & friendly people there. I can say more nice things about the place. The only thing they need to improve is breakfast, they must change the menu, instead of serving same breakfast everyday. But overall am happy with the place, I will definitely go and stay there again. :)
